Well, let me first say that I'm a HUGE believer in therapy. Seriously. I'm all for paying someone to listen to me from an objective viewpoint and help me work on solving my own problems or issues. No man is an island. Sometimes we need the extra brainpower and support of someone not in our immediate lives. But yes, I firmly believe that you can honestly let go of the little things you can't control. It takes genuine effort to notice those things that are setting you off, recognize your reactions, and make a conscious decision on how you will accept or reject the very thing bothering you. Definitely do some self-educating here. Read those life changing books like Way of the Peaceful Warrior, Wake-Up! The Enlightenment of an American Misfit & Outlaw, and other books by authors such as Deepak Chopra. I highly recommend "Awakening" by Anthony DeMello. It rocked my world. Also, take 5 minutes to put on classical or new age music, close your eyes, and take an assessment of how your body feels. Its amazing the calm that comes from taking those few minutes to check in with the current state of your own body. In the end, You are not angry or anxious. You is a constant state of being. You are simply feeling. Feelings are like clouds. We experience them but they are transient and brief. And the best thing about feelings, is that we have the power within ourselves to decide if we accept or reject them. The world does not happen to you. You get to choose how you experience your world.

Think its possible to just stop caring about the little stuff you cant control? I ask because I have realized more and more looking back on my life that I have had some serious anxiety issues that I somewhat knew I had but didnt want to pay any attention to it... I always just thought I was stupidly overreacting to trivial things.... But now Im thinking it is beyond that. I dont want to get help for it, so I have decided, when it comes down to it, Ill just stop caring.... Can we make that a possibility? Thoughts?

Spread out evenly in dish. Put aside Filling 2 cups Raw Pumpkin cut up 1 Avocado 1 Tbsp Lemon Juice 1 Tsp. Cinnamon ½ Tsp. Nutmeg ½ Tsp.

It will swell and absorb the excess moisture. Put into dish onto crust and spread evenly. Set in Fridge to allow to set some more. Serve with following Whip. Whip: 1 cup of Walnuts or Macadamia Nuts 5-7 Dates 1 Tbsp. Lemon Juice Water to keep mixture moving in blender Put all ingredients in Blender or Magic Bullet and let process until smooth.

Comment on Week 2 recap by Lyssa

Week 2 felt easy in comparison to my Week 1 because I was home the entire time sans visitors and able to cook. I too, however, was sick, so I didn't get in as many workouts as I usually do. I did get to make some great food that allowed me to stay totally Paleo and get well pretty quickly. I really enjoy the social aspect of eating, so it was also really nice to have dinners Thursday and Saturday nights with other Paleo-eaters. This week will be interesting, as I travel to two Thanksgiving dinners and then LA this weekend ... headed to the grocery store to stock up on my traveling Paleo stash!

Comment on Week 2 recap by Lisa

Week 2 was a tough one for me as well. I felt tired and not myself a lot of the time. My workouts felt a lot slower. However, I'm not completely sure how much of that I can attribute to diet change. I had a stressful week at work, and by Friday I was sick. My mom tells me that ever since I was little, she would know when I was getting sick because I would be unusually cranky for days before hand. So maybe I still get a little bit of that :) Week 3 is off to a good start though, and I'm once again feeling thankful for this challenge. I'm starting to see some good benefits (post coming soon!), so I'm feeling really motivated to finish strong for the last half of the challenge.

Week 2 was a little tougher for me, as well. My energy and performance where up and down. There were a couple days when all I could think about where Thai curry (with rice!) or pizza. Honestly though, those cravings were out of laziness. I just didn't want to cook or clean up after. I wanted to sit on the couch and pay someone to bring it to me. Thursday's Team TLSP dinner was a god-send because Lisa cooked us an awesome meal...and I didn't have to clean it up after :) Total treat! I think I've mentioned before what a sucker I am for ice cream. Well, I discovered that if you take Lyssa's Fudge Baby recipe, add coconut milk, blend, and then freeze for about 30-60 minutes you get a wonderful ice cream-like cup full of paleo awesomeness. Considering how small my personal little food processor is, I can indulge now without over-indulging. I mean, hey, I can only make 1/4th of the recipe at a time...I should be able to stop the madness when necessary. Oh, I had 2 bourbons this weekend (which was within the rules established by Team TLSP) and discovered that my liver does not like it. My tastebuds finally decided to like it but my tummy said HELL to the NO! 2 to 3 hours of intense, "which side is the appendix on?" pain was enough for me to swear off bourbon. I'm now left solely with red wine. That's just fine with me since I love big reds. Love learning about them. Love them with food. Love them alone. Love them instead of dessert. Love, love, love them. Moderation will be the key... Final thought on Week 2 - Thank goodness this is half over!
